Choosing Between Diamond and White Sapphire

wedding ring engagement ring diamond jewelry

It is entirely up to you whether you prefer a white sapphire or a diamond as a ring setting. Whenever it comes to light reflection, diamonds are by far the most superior material to choose. The same can be said for color. Even though a white sapphire does not appear to be a bad choice, when placed next to a diamond, it may appear dull. Furthermore, diamonds are a tad harder than other gemstones. On the Moh's scale, they have a hardness of 10, whereas sapphires have a hardness of 9. A sapphire can be scratched more easily than a diamond, despite the fact that a 9 is still considered to be fairly hard.

Is It Less Expensive Than Diamonds?

Then there's the matter of the cost. Despite the fact that diamonds and white sapphires have vastly different characteristics, they are frequently compared on the basis of price. White sapphires are about a quarter of the price of a diamond, but it is still considered a gemstone. But, did you know that we have diamonds to suit every price range? If you're not sold on the idea of a white sapphire ring, take a look at the rest of our online jewelry collection instead.

Alternatives Are Available.

Another option is to use a combination of diamonds and sapphires in your ring. It is possible to find classic combinations, such as blue sapphires and white diamonds, in a ring. Alternatively, there are more contemporary options such as rainbow jewelry, which is made up of a combination of colored sapphires and colorless diamonds. Whatever type of jewelry you're looking for, we're likely to have it in stock. Make an appointment with a diamond consultant to find your ideal piece.

Other Benefits Of Diamonds

As you now know, diamonds are harder, more brilliant, and have a better color. But there are other reasons why people prefer diamonds:

  • White sapphires are less special than diamonds because they are less valuable. Diamonds are by far the most popular choice for a valuable and sentimental family heirloom.
  • Diamonds are a girl's best friend and a love symbol. Diamonds have long been the gemstone of choice for true love.
  • It's easier to see the difference in larger stones. Diamonds sparkle brighter, and white sapphires have more inclusions. Increasing the stone size makes a noticeable difference. Diamonds are the way to go if you want a bigger stone.
  • DARK BLUE DIAMOND Obviously, natural white sapphires are exempt from this, but most are. This does not affect the sapphire's natural color. Some object to enhancing a natural gem's color.

This is also true of fancy colored diamonds. Natural diamonds can also be treated to gain a fancy color.
